Como você é burro (means something like “How you’re stupid”) is part of a quote said by Brazilian singer Caetano Veloso during an interview on a TV show, answering the question of the journalist Geraldo Mayrink.
Caetano Emanuel Viana Teles Veloso, better known as Caetano Veloso, is a musician, producer, arranger and Brazilian writer.
Answering to what the journalist had asked, Caetano Veloso ´said (free translation to English):
"No, you’re stupid, man, this is crazy… how you’re dumb.. this is absurd… Everything you just said was stupid….. stupid..
I can’t even remember anything you just said because you speak in a dumb way. ".
The video (just the meme, not the whole interview):
It all started on a Brazilian television show called “Vox Populi”. Caetano Veloso was there answering several questions. In one of the questions, a reporter asked a question about the military regime in Brazil and Caetano replied repeating several times “you’re stupid.” The interview was first displayed in 1978.
Despite being a fairly old interview (dated 1978), the interview became popular on the internet recently (that’s why the meme is dated 2012), after the station that had displayed this interview reprise the interview as a celebration of 40 years of broadcasting. A user posted a video in 2012 that had the whole answer given by the singer to the question of the journalist Geraldo Mayrink. Therefore the date of the video name of the video was “Caetano Veloso Puto 5 – Detonando Geraldo”. A fraction of the full interview, which had been posted on Youtube previously. Soon, the video started getting known and became a meme widely used by Brazilians.
On April 9th, 2013, a video of Brazilian congressman and evangelic pastor Marco Feliciano was posted on YouTube, where he attributes Veloso’s success to a supposed deal with devil. One day after, Paula Lavigne, former wife of the singer, has tweeted a link to aforementioned video. The tweet said: “Answer of Caetano to Feliciano LOL” (free translation). It was a joke, like Veloso were calling Feliciano stupid. This helped to increase meme’s popularity.
